It's time to clean the fridge, Garfield. I'll call a S.W.A.T. team. Grim. I haven't seen these olives in years. And it's only halfway back.

1 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

You're a very brave cat, Garfield, and I know you want me to be proud of you. ZOOM! He can smell a visit to the vet a mile away.

Garfield

POOKY! HOW DARE YOU HARM MY TEDDY BEAR! pop BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP

Garfield

YAWN ALL RIGHT! SNOW! I love the first snow of the year. WHOAAA! FUMP! BLAT! SPLAT! BOP! Did you enjoy the snow, Garfield? Quite...I'm ready for summer snow.

4 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Attention, lounge lizards! This is your week in the sun. Today we begin celebrating "National Lazy Week"! What's so great about being lazy, you say? What if war were declared and nobody showed?

5 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Is National Lazy Week for you? Ask yourself this: Would you be willing to lead a parade in celebration of the lazy life? If the answer is yes...you're all wrong for Lazy Week.

6 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Never confuse being lazy with being apathetic. We lazy people are not apathetic. Apathetic people don't care about anything. Lazy people care, we just don't do anything about it.

7 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Do people call you "worthless"? Do people call you a "couch potato"? Why should we be held up to public ridicule just because we subscribe to a kinetically passive lifestyle. We should stand up for ourselves! THE NEXT TIME PEOPLE CALL

8 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Don't forget the National Lazy Week motto, lazy people. "There must be an easier way". Many great ideas have been spawned from that noble sentiment. You can bet it wasn't an exercise freak who invented power steering.

9 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

For those of you who want to stop abusing your bodies through fanatic exercise, but can't muster the willpower... You can now join "Garfield's Exercisers Anonymous". Every time you feel an uncontrollable urge to jog, I send someone overwith a mu

Waterin' down the coffee again, pilgrim? Burp JON! JON! WAKE UP! I'M HAVING NIGHTMARES! Garfield, if you didn't stuff yourself right before going to bed, you wouldn't dream about big, ugly monsters. Did you hear what he called youguys? I think I'll polish

11 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Isn't this great, Garfield? We have a whole day of fishing ahead of us! Hotcha. HEY! WHERE's THE BAIT? Bait? GARFIELD! I thought it was sushi.

12 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Actually, Garfield is pretty easy to care for. Cats are so clean, always primping and washing themselves. We're out of foot powder. Almost to a fault.

13 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Ah, my dear, you're as lovely as ever, but, you look so stiff and formal in that outfit. Why don't you slip into something more comfortable? LIKE ME!

14 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

CHOMP! SPRONG!

15 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Just what is an heirloom? A heirloom is something that's been in your family for generations... That no one's had the guts to pitch out.

16 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

zzzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzz Just as I suspected.

GARFIELD! WAKE UP! I've made a decision that could alter the course of my entire life. I have decided to grow a mustache. I suppose I could blame this on monday.

19 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Notice anything different about me, Garfield? You're not drinking out of your Binky The Clown mug. I think my mustache is coming in rather nicely. That's not your cocoa? Wanna touch it? It feels really weird. Hey, buddy, I have to eatwith these hands!

20 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Look Odie! A hideous hairy monster is nesting under Jon's nose! Maybe it'sll spread and cover the rest of his face. Are you making fun of me? IT MOVED!

21 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Mustaches do strange things to people. They make some guys think they're someone they're not. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a darn. I don't feel safe here anymore.

22 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

ARRRGH! JON! WHAt HAPPENED? I'M FINE! GO AWAY! ARE YOU OKAY? TELL ME! The shaver snagged my mustache, okay?

23 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I shaved my mustache off, Garfield. Do tell. I decided it made me look like a walrus. I'm proud of you, Jon. It takes a big walrus to admit his mistakes.

24 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

How's my little buddy today? Crowded. TAP TAP TAP Garfield, what are you doing? SNAP! Charades? I love charades! Let's see...first word...you? No, you're! That's it! You're! Leg! No! Stand! You're standing in something! Fourth word!MY! You're standing in

Garfield

Here I am falling asleep face down in a bowl of food. This is it. I've reached the pinnacle of laziness and gluttony...how depressing. There's no place to go after you've reached the top.

28 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I eat too much because I'm depressed, and I'm depressed because I eat too much. It's a vicious circle... That took years to perfect!

29 January 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

BANG! BANG! Hello? Anybody home? BRINNNNNG! Next time, use the door knocker. Sorry.

30 January 1987

3 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Having anmesia isn't so bad. It'll be kind of fun finding out what a great guy I am. ARRRGH! OH, NO! I'M A CAT!

4 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Maybe seeing Odie will jog your memory. What a swell looking dog. Put 'er there. YIP! YIP! YIP! I woner if I'm going to like this Garfield?

5 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Look, Garfield. It's Pooky! Your favorite possession and closest friend. Do you remember Pooky? Don't be silly. I'm a grown cat. What would I need with a teddy bear?

6 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Amnesia has wiped my slate clean. I start establishing who I am today. I am (burp) a glutton.

7 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, stranger. This body ain't big enough for the both of us. What a week...I fall on my head, totally lose my memory, and have no idea who this Garfield fella is. HANg ON! SOMETHING'S COMING BACK! HA! HA! WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! I'mterribly sorry about that. Y

8 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Amnesia is weird. This Garfield is like a total stranger to me. I know nothing about him. Aside from what the creep did to my body.

9 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

This should jog your memory, Garfield... LASAGNA! No thank you. You wouldn't have a plump, juicy mouse, wouldn't you? ARRRGH! I'd never get this stuff out of my whiskers.

10 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

You just HAVE to restore Garfield's memory, doc. He doesn't beat up on Odie, he doesn't claw the furniture, he's not lazy and obnoxious... Are you sure you want me to do this? Come to think of it...

11 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Let's test his reflexes. DONK! DOING! Normal. For Garfield.

12 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Perhaps Garfield's amnesia could be cured by lightly traumatizing his cranium. KNOCK MY CAT ON THE HEAD?! WHO WOULD EVER DO SUCH A THING?!! May I be of assistance? You stay out of this.

13 February 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Go ahead. A little tap on the head may bring your cat's memory back. DONK! GONK! HEY! I CAN REMEMBER! IT'S ME! GARFIELD THE CAT! Garfield? Who's Garfield?

Garfield, I just don't know what I see in you. It is a bit overwhelming, isn't it? You're rude, obnoxious, fat, selfish, egotistical, and totally devoid of any charm. I AM NOT EGOTISTICAL

4 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Arlene, I think it's time we get serious. You do? Yes, serious about getting that gap between your teeth fixed. The truth hurts.

Garfield

* FFT! BANG! UGH! Rats! The washer's broken! Com on, Garfield, we have to go to the laundromat. NO, JON! PLEASE ANYWHERE BUT THERE. You know what that place is like! Especially on weekends. I'll get him for this.

8 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, you need more vegetables in your system. What are you going to do? Drive a carrot through my heart? Here, have some spinach. OH-NO! GASP! CHOKE! COUGH! Stop being melodramatic, Garfield.

9 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Eat your spinach, Garfield. It's good for you. Well, now that's more like it!

10 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Have some spinach, Garfield. Sure, and let's garnish it with a big box of raisins. ZIP! I HATE THEM TOO!

11 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Spinach. It tastes bad. It looks bad. SPLUT! It even sounds bad.

12 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Yuck! Spinach! Garfield! You ate all your spinach! Not really. It's in the saltshaker.

13 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I hate spinach. It's green, it's slimy. And it looks like it's moving.

14 March 1987

RRINNGG! Hello? Iuh, I think you have the wrong number. But...would you care to make it the right number, songbird? This is a lonely man here.

16 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

So what's your name, sweet thing? I can't believe Jon! How about a date? Trying to get a date with a wring number. Tomorrow at seven? Great! A DESPARATE wrong number.

17 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, I'd like you to meet my date. MOMMA MIA! What's with your cat? He's, uh, terrified of daisies.

18 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Now, be nice to my date. She might be sensitive about her weight. How'd she get in here? Through the garage door? Her name is Bertha. Figures. She's a lovely person. You can't judge a book by it's cover, you know. And you can't judge aship by its hull.

19 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Bertha, I'd like you to meet Garfield. He could use some meat on his bones. Affectionate sort, isn't he? He's a sucker for sweet talk.

20 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Think, Jon, think. There's gotta be SOMETHING nice to say to your date. My, your teeth are round. I eat a lot. You don't say! No! Really!

Garfield

Yes, sir. Table for five. Z There it is! Just like I told you! Z Hey, cat! What is the meaning of this trap? Wha...? You realize this is a direct violation of our treaty agreement. Aw, gimme a break. You know this means war! Look,nobody says you have to s

23 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I think you're going to like this restaurant, Bertha. As long as they serve food. A woman after my own heart. Would you like a table or a booth? A table, please. And the lady will have a booth. What do you have to do to get any serivearound here? You have

30 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hello, I'm Sweety Bird. I sing sweet happy songs to brighten your morning. BRIGHTEN MY MORNING?! DO YOU WANT TO BRIGHTEN MY MORNING?! Then you can march out of that cage and crawl between two slices of bread. JON!

31 March 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, do you like sweety bird? He's right up there with dogs and mondays. You wouldn't intend him any harm, would you? I don't know what you're talking about. Then why is he covered with clam sauce? An old family recipe.

1 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

SQWAWK! HONK! Did we remember how to open the bird cage? Not only that, we forgot birds could fly.

2 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, bird! You think you're safe out there, huh? Well, I have a little treat for you! Have you, perchance, ever heard a cat scream?

3 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, Garfield! What are you doing out there? And look! Sweety bird's on your head! WHERE'S MY CAMERA? I loathe life.

You know, Garfield, sharing is one of life's greates pleasures. GULP! I love giving people pleasure.

Hurry, Garfield, the TV workout show is about to start! You promised you''d try it. So let's go. Okay, but first answer me this... Just how the heck am I supposed to move?

6 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

GARFIELD! YOU SHREDDED MY RUNNING SHOES! Someday you'll thank me for that, Jon. Jogging's the disease. I'm the cure.

7 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Okay, stand up straight and put your hands on your hips. Those of you too fat to find your hips, just give it your best guess. I hate sarcastic fitness instructors.

8 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Now for jumping jacks on the two count. ONE! CRASH! Oh, by the way, before we get to two, don't try this exercise on a recently polished floor. NOW he tells me.

9 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

That's good, everybody. Push up! ...and down! ...and up!... I was built for push-ups.

10 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

No, seriously, Linda, I'm a fun guy. I do great impressions! You do impressions too? Let's hear one. Listen to this, Garfield, She sounds like a dial tone! This man has no brain.

Garfield

You're a slob, Garfield, Why can't you stay as clean as other cats? You're supposed to wash yourself like this. Oh, very well. Start with this arm and make it snappy. You have a lot of territory to cover.

13 April 1987

See anything you like?

16 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

OH, NO! YOU CHEWED UP MY NEWSPAPER AGAIN! Hey! This isn't the paper I get. It must belong to a neighbor. KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! A 250 lb. neighbor, to be precise.

Thin ice > SPLOOSH! Hexy! THIS ice isn't thin! Neither are you.

Garfield

I hate 3-D movies. Here, Odie! Here, boy! I'll throw the bone and you fetch it, okay, boy? Arf! There it goes! Odie just fell for the oldest trick in the book. ZIP! WHUMP Now what kind of dog would have a bone that big? Oh, THATkind of dog.

19 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

This is a perfect day to stay in bed and contemplate life's truths. Yip! Yip! BRINNNG! GET UP, GARFIELD! Truths like: "mondays stink".

20 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Life has many good things to offer: music, art, literature... Sometimes I think about educating myself on those subjects... But then I tihnk, "stick with what you know".

21 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

How did you get to be so lazy, Garfield? Brains, hard work, tenacity and dedication. You're not just born lazy, you know. It's an acquired skill... I'm sorry I asked. ...an art form if you will, not unlike poetry, dance or music.

22 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Here comes the mailman, Garfield. I want you to be on your best behavior. ROWRR! I must admit, that was one of my better behaviors.

23 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I ate too much. I'll probably get another sermon from Jon. Garfield, you eat too much. I was hoping you wouldn't notice.

24 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield

It was high noon when the stranger rode into town. Now comes my favorite part... He hitched up his horse and ambled into the saloon.

27 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I am hungry. Therefore I am. Rationalizing another bout with gluttony, Garfield. I don't discuss philosophy with pea brains.

28 April 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Now I lay me down to sleep... Hold that thought... I think I heard Garfield open the refrigerator door.

Ah, I see Jon placed a pie on his windowsill to tempt me. Well, let it be known I'm capable of resisting all temptations! I just don't choose to.

2 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Ouch! Where did the mailman get chain mail socks? All right! It's here! Look, Garfield! It's the world's largest balloon! We'll see about that. Uh...that's pretty big, Garfield, You ain't seen nothing yet. fuh! fuh! fuh! Garfield?!fuh! fuh! fuh! fuh! fuh!

3 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Aha! So Jon's trying to sneak off on vacation without me, huh? He'll have quite a surprise in store for him. Who says nothing good ever happens on a monday?

4 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Laziness and procrastination go hand in hand. See this hair? It's cat hair I never got around to shedding last year.

5 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Huh, the stereo's all the way up, and there's no sound. I'd better tell Jon.

6 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

You know, Garfield, they say inside every fat person there's a thin person trying to get out. I know what you mean. Mine escaped about nine years ago and I haven't seen him since.

7 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, Garfield, the gang and I wanted to give you a gift of appreciation. How sweet! Why the show of affection? We just like having you around. Besides, if you left, Jon might get a REAL cat!

8 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

How about a nice quiet breakfast for two, Garfield? Great idea! SLAM! click Sometimes Jon can be so thoughtful

9 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Come on, Odie. There's no reason to be afraid of the dark. Just look at this! Someone has left the cellar door open! Jon has told me a hundred times to keep it closed. Or somebody might get hurt. SLAM! thump thump thump thump thumpthump BONK! Sorry about

I'm hungry! Patience, Garfield. It's time you learn a little patience. Patience is waiting for the pizza to thaw.

11 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Look at that stomach, Garfield. That's disgusting! I'm putting you on a diet. Rat fink.

12 May 1987

Hello, diet. Goodbye, food. ERRRK! Hello, sugar withdrawal.

13 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Okay, Odie, I heard you dogs are supposed to be good at tracking things. Maybe you can help me... Here's a picture of a lasagna. Now get it, Odie! Get it! Grrrrrr!

14 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I've only been on this diet for two days and I feel thinner already. It must be a delayed reflection.

15 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Fat's a funny thing. You never lose it from the right places. Fat has a sick sense of humor.

16 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Stop being so melodramatic, Garfield, You've only been on your diet for ten minutes. Z Mmm, food! I love food. GARFIELD! YOUR EATING IS OUT OF CONTROL! More food! More trainloads of food! Air-drop food into my mouth! More cattle!Hurry! I'm hungry! Ahhh! D

17 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Boy, I wish I had a fifty pound pan of lasagna. KRONG!!! Now wouldn't you think I'd know better than to make a wish like that on a monday.

18 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

There are many ways to make a diet more appealing. Some say it helps to dress your food up. I say it still looks like celery.

19 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I hate diets. They're morally wrong. A stomach is a terrible thing to waste.

20 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

OH, GARFIELD! You've done so well on your diet I'm giving you a treat. OH MY GOSH! I'VE FORGOTTEN HOW TO EAT!

21 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Let me put it this way...have you ever considered a career as a river barge? Your mother was a blender. That hurt.

22 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Come on, take a chance, weigh yourself! I'll be kind! Trust me! BOY! ARE YOU FAT! Not to mention gullible, too.

23 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield

Guess what I got at a garage sale today, Garfield? You got my attention. Tah-dah! Isn't it great? That diet must've been murder, huh, fella?

25 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I can't believe Jon actually bought that thing. What good is it it? MA! COME QUICK! THE COW'S SICK!

26 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, mom, guess what I got at a garage sale? I bought one of those cow skulls like you see in the old westerns. Behind you, Jon! Hang on, mom, I think I'm about to scream or something.

27 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, did you know everything evolves from a lower life form? I didn't know that? Why, of course! It all makes sense now! Rocks evolved from dogs!

28 May 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

GARFIELD! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! I'm unraveling your dental floss. I HATE THAT! Oh, very well, Tomorrow we'll do something you like.

Hey, Garfield, you're going to be nine years old this friday. Thanks for reminding me. As cats go, you're approaching the golden years. The heck with the golden years. I'm five and holding.

17 June 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

What's the matter, Garfield? Feeling your years now that you're turning nine? Come closer, my son. I'm having trouble hearing you. SLAP! SLAP! SLAP! SLAP!

24 June 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, we're out of cat food. How about dog food instead? Let me put it this way, it's either dog food or nothing. Arf. I'll get it.

25 June 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Look, Garfield, I don't care if you think it tastes awful. You'd better eat that because you're not getting anything else! SPLUT! Hmmm...he's right. It DOES taste pretty awful.

26 June 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Do you know how to get a finicky cat to heat his cat food? Pretend you're going to take it away from him. It works every time.

30 June 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

I'd like to buy some glue solvent. Is this a holdup? No, you see, my cat glued these glasses to my face. Your cat? Sounds silly, huh? Not at all...hello, police?

Look Garfield, I bought you a rubber mouse. What's that for? You can chase it, toss it in the air, stalk it and pounce on it. Yes? Oh, forget it. Maybe it plays music or something.

25 July 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

My zest for life must be a quart low. Ladies and gentlemen, Garfield and his trained dog will now perform for you. Do a back flip, Odie. Beg, Odie. Roll over, Odie. GARFIELD! DINNER! Burp, boy, great dinner. Now where's Odie?

Let's go fishing, Garfield. Well, what do you think? I think you're right. Fish paralyzed by hysterical fits of laughter probably ARE easier to catch.

27 July 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Got my equipment, got my flies. Let's go fishing! Hang on, Garfield! My body is hooked to the drapes. This is going to be a long day.

28 July 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Poor little worms, waiting to be skewered on Jon's hook and then fed to some vicious fish. Well it's not right! YOU'RE FREE! YOU'RE FREE! Swimming must not be one of their strong suits.

29 July 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Remember, Garfield, the key to fishing is patience., the ability to remain motionless for hours. Garfield? Z That's my boy.

30 July 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Well, Garfield, what do you think of fishing so far? I like it? Where else can you take a three-hor nap and call it sport?

31 July 1987

Catch anything, boys? Yeah, but we threw 'em back. They were in danger of being eaten by the bait.

Garfield

You've got a pretty good thing going here, don't you? Yup. Jon feeds me, strokes me, changes my kitty litter and caters to my whims. So what does HE get out of it? He gets to call himself "Master".

Dear Hair Ball Cat Food Co., I find your cat food gives my cat a "long silky coat of hair" as advertised... However, I think you should add a disclaimer. "Do not feed your cat more than 36 cans a day."

Cheep up, Garfield. Just remember that life is just a game. It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play that counts. So, what are you going to do today? Forfeit.

Can we be of assistance? * That stupid dog next door is in for a BIG surprise. When he comes by, he will mistake the mirror for me. Then he will attack and fall into this pit. Then this net will fall on him. Then this cement mixerwill tip, sealing that su

Do you always insult the people you weigh? Yes. It's a defense mechanism. Insults compensate for my own depressions, my insecurities, my loathing for this job and my lot in life. I'm sorry to hear that. Thanks, blubber bottom.

Can we take a 50-mile hike today, Jon? Huh? Can we? Can we? Can we? boing boing You're drinking too much coffee, Garfield. Or a swim. What if we swim to Tahiti?

I told the woman at the flower shop I was tired of you eating my plants. She said you wouldn't harm this one. But, I doubt it.

How much do I weigh today, RX-2? You weigh somewhere between seven and thirty-two pounds. I have learned it is wise to give my customers a wide selection.

Like the sandwich I made for you, Odie? Hey, Garfield! Come out here! Watch me blow this bubble. You're going to get a bang out of it. FUH-FUH-FUH-FUH BANG You're right. That was fun. HERE! YOU CHEW THE GUM THIS TIME! That's it,fella. Blow it big. fuh-fuh

Gourmands know their utensils. This is the table-spoon, the teaspoon, the soupspoon, the sugar spoon. And my personal favorite... Theplay spoon! toing SPLUT!

16 October 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfoield, why do you always spit the cherry pits out onto the table? I like a little floor show after dinner.

17 October 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

One of these days, Arlene! One of these days...POW! To the moon! OH-NO! SOMEONE ATE MY DINNER! AHA! FAT MICE! You guys wouldn't know what happened to my dinner, would you? Oh, sure! Blame us. It's always the mice's fault, right men?Not even a fair trial.

This honey has lots of options like windshield wipers and a horn. You mean things like windshield wipers and a horn are options? No offense, pal, but in your price range, the TIRES are optional.

Garfield

This car's a real steal at $ 1,900. It has twice the luggage space of any other car in its class. Where's the back seat? Oh, no! I'll notify the authorities.

27 October 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Don't go away, folks, I'll be right back. Honest Ed seems nice enough, Garfield, but there's something about him I don't trust. Maybe it's the fact his office is in a pickup truck with the engine running.

28 October 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Nice doin' business with you. And, remember, at Honest Ed's, we stand beside every car we sell. Don't you mean you stand "behind" every car you sell? Not with the mechanics I've got working for me! VAROOM! CRASH

Garfield

You're lazy, Garfield. You just don't understand, do you, Jon? In the grand scheme of things, each of us has our little niche to fill. Through with our rationalization, are we? It's my niche time.

3 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Mornin' hon. The usual? You got it, Irma. Say, hon. What IS the usual? I was hoping you'd know. These people are in desperate trouble.

Wake up, Garfield. I can't move. My battery is dead. Sniff...hang on! I think I smell a jump start coming my way!

6 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey, Garfield, I looked up the word "lazy" in the dictionary and they had your picture by it. That's a lie. I slept through the appointment for the photo session.

You awake yet? The wild house cat spies his unsuspecting prey. Potato chips! Why do they make these bags so hard to open? EERRRGGHH NNGGNNFF SQUEEZE KA-BLAM! GARFIELD! WHAT HAPPENED? They oughta put warnings on those bags!

Cats have just surpassed dogs as the country's favorite pets! Somehow the victory would have been more satisfying had the competition been stiffer.

9 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Sometimes I think I'm slowing down. GARFIELD! DINNER! CHOOM! But, there's still a little life left in the ol' afterburners.

10 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, you're never going to lose weight eating between the meals. There's only one thing to do. Do you know the meaning of "willpower"? I don't know the meaning of "between meals".

11 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Look, Odie, Jon's sleeping. Z Mybe we should be quiet and let him rest. Z Or we can shave his head. Z

Hey, Garfield, I have a new cat food for you. Come on, give it a try. It's not that bad. I don't know, Jon. Something tells me it isn't that good.

Life is filled with opportunities. shake shake shake shake PSSSSH! If you know where to look for them.

Garfield

Let's just say, talking during the movie is a pet peeve of mine. Z Garfield, you must be the slowest, laziest thing on the face of the earth. On the contrary. I'm not slow at everything I do. I'm the fastest eater I know. GOOSH! Ican fall asleep in an ins

DINNER IS... WHOMP! snerved.

17 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

What's the matter, Garfield? Don't you feel good? That's an understatement. Do you think it was something you ate? No... WHANG!! It was something YOU fed me!

18 November 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

It says this cat food is "fit for a king". The "king's" food taster.

19 November 1987

I, the Caped Avenger, shall seek out injustice wherever it may lurk... And with one swift motion of my mighty hand, I will go... Naughty, naughty, naughty!

Garfield, why are you so vain? In my case, modesty would be unseemly in a cat of such breeding. Where did I go wrong?

Garfield

Odie's never around when I need a fall guy. Hmmm. Hey, Jon, look what I can do with this grape. poo! GUNK! Oh, yeah? Watch this! I'm not impressed. WATCH THIS! OH YEAH? WATCH THIS! Veterinary clinic What the... Don't ask.

Garfield, you've been drinking too much coffee lately. There's no such thing as too much coffee. I'm worried about you. Okay, okay! I'll cut down! Just give me half a cup.

3 December 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Sorry, Garfield, but we're out of coffee this morning. I noticed. I guess we'll just have to go without. That's what YOU think. What are you doing? Sucking on a used coffee filter.

Food is a dichotomy. Fat people hate to love it. And skinny people love to hate it.

It says here that many artists starve themselves in the service of their craft. GLUCK A starving glutton...I like that.

Are you sure this is all you want for Christmas, Garfield?! This is a decoration, not a snack, comprendo? * -

20 December 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

The one thing I hate about the Christmas season is addressing all these cards. I believe I have a way to cut your work in half. Address this one to dad AND mom.

This year I pledge to lose weight and get in shape! No, no, be realistic, Garfield, That's a bit much to bite off. Perhaps I should set a bit more realistic goal. I pledge to establish contact with aliens from another planet!

29 December 1987
 
 
   
Garfield

Well. it's time to take stock of the year. Let's see...I ate and slept and accomplished not one single thing of socially redeeming value. I'm so proud of me.
